My theory of writing and, indeed, life is that if you do it enough, you'll eventually get better or you'll quit or, indeed, die. I intend to be as productive as possible. A major goal of mine is to have one-hundred short stories e-published ASAP, and since nowhere near all of my stories are even in the epub box, that means I've got to write at least two-hundred short stories.
It's doable! Once I get my brain in the right groove, I can knock out a short story in a day, know whether it's any good upon waking up, and if it's good proofread it the next day. I just need to keep that up for days on end. Or at least every weekend if I want to take the long view. I mean, c'mon: You throw enough stuff out there, and there'll be something for everybody.
Success will smile on you if you just let it roll free and proliferate. Just like nuclear weapons.

Get to it, writers.
Aww, she's reading in the park. It's been a long time since I've seen anybody sitting down and reading in public, besides newspapers. It's also been a long time since I've been to a proper park. Reading in the jungle is a different experience.
(Note: I haven't actually read the eBook I've linked to there, this was just the first image that popped up on a search for "Smashwords" that wasn't the logo or dirty. It's free, though, for what it's worth.)
